Make more Money Online By Creating a Facebook Store

Posted by Charles on January 4th, 2014

For years now Facebook has enabled small businesses and large corporations alike to make tons of income through its “fan pages” - companies use these fan pages to allocate a secure costumer base as well as to promote exclusive deals and promotions to their loyal clientele.

For example, Target recently offered special coupons to the first 1,000 “fans” who “liked” a product the company posted on their page. And since it’s basically free advertisement, it’s a great feature to utilize.

You can do this by searching for a “vendor app” on the social networking site to create an ecommerce button.

But a more lucrative option is to create an entire “Facebook Store.”

Facebook Stores allow members to browse an abundant of products and purchase them directly from the social networking site which can ultimately strengthen your number of sales.

What makes a “store” even more special is that members can share their shopping bag with all of their other Facebook friends which means you, the business owner, can reach out to an even large audience.

Unfortunately most store builders, like Store Front Social charge for their services - they’ll help you set everything up and add special features that will make the purchasing process for your costumers easier. But there are some equally as effective store builders that are offered completely for free, like Shopping Mall.

And if you’re concerned that it will take a cut of your sales, it does not. But you do need to have a paypal business account for the service to work however.

That said, to learn how to set a Facebook store using Shopping Mall, continue reading below.

Step one:

- Create an account on Shopping Mall.

Step two:

- Add the app on your Facebook and follow the sites directions. You should be immediately instructed how post a product for sale, which will include entering item data uploading photos. It will also take you through a short run through of how create multiple categories for products, track sales, change colors and fonts, and how to display one particular item on the main page of your store front.

Making Money Through Freelance Writing

Posted by Charles on July 26th, 2013

There are two dramatically different views about freelance writing.

One is an exaggerated image of writers sunbathing on some golden beach on a Caribbean island while indulging in their passion called writing.

The other is that of an emaciated writer begging publishers, website owners and such to pay him a pittance for his work.

The truth probably lies somewhere else altogether.

I fear that freelance writers either don’t know the truth or avoid looking at themselves in […] Continue Reading…

7 Ways to Add Real Value as an Affiliate

Posted by Charles on March 5th, 2013

Around 6 months ago at the beginning of December 2009 Google began banning AdWords advertisers – 30,000 of them - many of which had poor quality bridge pages, adding no value to the user.

It’s clearer than ever before that Google wants affiliates to add real value. Not simply a rehash of a merchant’s site or a basic mini-site with general ezine-style articles and numerous links out to the products you’re promoting.

These days you have […] Continue Reading…
